DROCKULA. TEATRO INFANTA ISABEL (MADRID)
Our first and second year E.S.O. students travelled to Teatro Infanta Isabel in Madrid to attend a theatre play in English language called Drockula:
Count Dracula, a retired rock and roll star, lives a solitary life in his castle in Pennsylvania with just the eccentric drummer Rumsfeld as company. They both miss the rock and roll lifestyle and the adoration of their fans. The Count specially misses his wife and singer Elisabetta, killed by the famous vampire slayer Eddie Van Helsing. The situation changes, however, when two young singers full of talent and energy approach the castle on their way to Broadway.
